UK based plus size fashion blogger AmandaApparel wears her favourite little black dress with a hint of sparkle in this outfit post, sponsored by Lovedrobe.
As you probably heard over on my Instagram, yesterday was Scott's birthday! Unlike me, Scott is NOT into birthdays. He keeps saying "it's just another day" and I don't GET it! I loooove birthdays, but I had to tone down my excitement so I wouldn't overwhelm him. We did have a lovely day though! It sarted with a long lie in and ended with a walk home to work off the Cosmo buffet we had for dinner with his parents. I'm still in a food coma, tbh!
I've had this gorgeous LBD in my closet since The Curve Fashion Festival, but hadn't had an occasion to wear such a lovely outfit. (Not that I need an occasion really, but this dress is a wee bit too nice to wear to uni) This is going to be my go-to dress for nights out for dinner or drinks. Despite the pout in some of these photos, I actually feel so gorgeous!
It's no secret that I LOVE to wear black. I love it even more now that I'm a blonde. So like, how ridiculous is it that I didn't really have a proper LBD before this one came along?! Sure I have several black dresses, but none of them are as pretty as this one. I wish you could see it bettter in the photos, but the fabric has the prettiest sparkle effect! It's not glitter, but more of a shimmer. I'm obsessed, honestly. I wish every article of clothing I own came with built in sparkles!
This is probably my favourite cut of dress. I know it may be cliché for a fat babe to love a fit and flare, but it's SUCH a classic sillhouette! Besides, I still love a figure hugging dress as much as the next girl. This dress hugs my bust SO snugly (aka perfectly), but doesn't show a lot of cleavage, which I generally prefer. The two pleats (and two unpictured pleats on the back) add a bit of volume and elegance to the skirt. Since I accidentally shrank my last garment from Lovedrobe in the wash, I've checked the tags and know to ONLY wash this dress in 30 degrees! I know, it's almost like I'm a real adult!
I would absolutely recommend this LBD to all my friends! The ribbed fabric is lovely, the fit is perfect, and it's so simply elegant! 10/10, AND it's also available in red! Now, here's a bonus photo of me looking VERY sleepy toward the end of The Curve Fashion Festival, featured on Lovedrobe's twitter.
